Editorial Note: We performed a 55-minute broadcast. Breaks containing advertisements were removed at the 12:31, 24:21, and 38:24 marks of this recording. While discussing Joe Thornton, MM stated he won the Hart Trophy as league MVP in 2005; he actually won it for the 2005-06 season; he was traded from the Bruins to the Sharks in Nov. 2005; there was no MVP in 2005, since the entire 2004-05 season was cancelled due to a labor dispute; While discussing injuries, MM identified Penguins' Trevor Daley as a forward; he is actually a defenseman; MM neglected to mention both the Sharks and Penguins have executed very well on the power plays throughout the playoffs, so one of the keys to success will be to avoid taking bad penalties and giving the opponent the man-advantage.
